Zoe Reid specialises in training in non-formal and experiential methods. Zoe has been training for over a decade in managing difficult epilepsy and seizures and then resilience, personal development and wellbeing issues. Zoe's interest in trauma started with the effect of epilepsy on all aspects of an individual’s life. She then moved into Rape Crisis and worked directly with survivors of sexual abuse.

Since realising how much trauma is feared and misunderstood, her passion for helping people recognise and support people in trauma has grown hugely. Zoe believes that everyone lives with some form of trauma and has her own lived experience of trauma recovery. Zoe works part-time as an assistant manager for Health in Mind.
